How does you garden grow

Hi all,

I have a sweet little card to show you today using a very adorable Lilli of the Valley image. I have actually had this image coloured up for ages and have finally got round to making it into a card. The image is called Watering the Flowers and it just sooo cute.

I wanted this card to have a bit of a shabby feel to it and so distressed all the papers and card mats with some white acrylic paint, then wiping if off so you could still see the pattern underneath. I added lots of gorgeous WOC flowers, apart from the big one which is actually made using mini cake cases scrunched up and then the tips painted with a bit of pale blue paint. All the flowers and die cut flourishes got the paint white treatment too and I added lots of other pretty things such as the cheesecloth, lace, metal flowers etc.

I really love how this card turned out and will definately be trying this distressing technique out again.

Thanks for popping by my blog today
